Learn how to make a living succulent wreath that makes a perfect centerpiece for your holiday table.

Materials Needed
  • wire wreath form

  • a variety of succulents
Tools Needed
  • small shovel
  • binding wire
  • clippers

Begin by lining the wire wreath form with a layer of moss. Make sure the bottom and sides of the form are covered in order to hold the soil in place.

Add succulent soil, leaving enough room for the potted succulents.


After watering the succulents, begin adding them into the wreath form one at a time.

Add more soil to pack the succulents in tight. And then top with moss to cover any gaps between the succulents.


Using the binding wire, you’ll wrap the entire wreath frame to secure the moss.


This living wreath makes a perfect centerpiece for your holiday table, or you can hang and enjoy. To keep the succulents fresh, simply spritz with water and keep out of direct sunlight.
